Datascaping And Designing With Information | #dataviz #urbanism | Datascapes | Scoop.it

DataAppeal software provides an alternative to complex mapping tools through an easy to use, web-based GIS application that renders typical data files into beautifully designed multi-dimensional maps and datascapes instantly. For architects, landscape architects, urban planners and designers of the built form, the application is a great tool to utilize evidence-based information to expose new site patterns, to provide alternative 3D modes of mapping for communication purposes, and to aid in the initiation of master plan designs.

It’s also a refreshing way to visually engage professional and students with their site-based data...

Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion world map redesigned

Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion world map redesigned | Datascapes | Scoop.it

A map that illustrates global forest densities using wood textures wins a competition to reinvent the tessellated Dymaxion world map by Buckminster Fuller.

First presented in 1943, Fuller's Dymaxion Map projects the world map onto the surface of a three-dimensional icosahedron that can be unfolded and flattened to two dimensions. It is said to be the first two-dimensional map of the entire surface of Earth that reveals our planet as one, without inaccurately distorting or splitting up the land.

A team comprising designer Nicole Santucci and San Francisco firm Woodcut Maps was selected as the winner of the Dymax Redux competition to redesign the seminal map, which was launched in April by the Buckminster Fuller Institute (BFI) in New York to coincide with the map's 70th anniversary.

Right now, if you were to take the Wiliamsburg Bridge between Manhattan and Brooklyn at night, you’d see the words “SAVE DOMINO” in big, boxy red lights on the side of an old industrial building.

Maps of unrealized city plans reveal what might have been

Maps of unrealized city plans reveal what might have been | Datascapes | Scoop.it

Maps can direct us from here to there, show where one thing is in relation to another, or add layers information to our surroundings. Whatever its form, a map’s main purpose is to make the complex world we live in more comprehensible.

But there are also maps that describe the world as it never came to be.

Those are the maps that interest Andrew Lynch, who runs a Tumblr called Hyperreal Cartography & The Unrealized City that's full of city maps collected from libraries, municipal archives, and dark corners of the internet.

Lynch recently shared a few of his favorite “dream cities” with WIRED’s MapLab...

Grand Plans: How The Simple Planning Diagram Has Shaped Our Cities

Grand Plans: How The Simple Planning Diagram Has Shaped Our Cities | Datascapes | Scoop.it

A new exhibition charts how powerful abstract drawings – from Le Corbusier's radiant city to the US township grid – have defined the nature of urban development.

 

An exhibition opened this month in San Francisco that charts the visual history and influence of the planning diagram, from the radial spokes of the garden city wheel to the New York set-back rule.

Grand Reductions: 10 Diagrams That Changed City Planning argues that these simple, abstract illustrations are "iconic distillations of values, policy agendas and ideologies".

"Planning indulges in the same world of image making that artists and advertisers do," writes Andrew Shanken, professor of architecture and urbanism at UC Berkeley. "Every plan is an act of persuasion, an argument for an alternative way of life that attempts to posit or convince an audience of that alternative."

 

VIsit the link for a look at five diagrams that have had a lasting impact on the way cities and countrysides are shaped.
